    Jumped on to work to see if it's stalled too but RDP has closed the session
    Downloading again and getting up to 3MB/sec but it's all over the shop.
    Also noticed it's a different download manager this morning. It was the transfer manager last night, and this morning it's the Akamai Download manager (on the technet downloads page, click details for Ultimate, then top downloads)

    Cheers for that - found it now

    Seems to be running ok at the mo - make sure you use the download manager (accessed from Top Downloads).... 500kb/s

    Looks like MS have been messing around... Can no longer download Pro or Ent from MSDN... and in TechNet it has been moved to "Top Downloads" so getting everything from TN now....

    I had Utimate queued on the File Tranfer Manager from yesterday and it's still resuming the download. Damned Virgin and their bandwidth throttling have restricted it to less than 100Kbps anfter the first GB though. I HAVE to ditch Virgin as soon as I can. I may get 10mbps, but if you are restricted so tightly it just means you hit the limit faster.
    May take a look at Sky today.

    Are you getting it from MSDN?
    Had trouble getting Ultimate to D/L from there - In fact it doesn't appear to be listed anywhere in MSDN - switched to TechNet and getting it no problem now

    That's handy, I can do an up-grade and not a complete re-install - [ according to the Upgrade Advisor ]

    For a laugh I'm sticking it on an ACER 3600GT

    I noticed that too when I went through the install.
    (had to remove windows virtual server though)

    Shame it bombed out with unreadable source files Another coaster.

    For people wanting to go from RC to RTM:

    http://windows7news.com/2009/07/28/u...s-7-rc-to-rtm/

    I'm getting it from MSDN at 1.09MB/s


    anyone have any idea what "If you retrieved a key for the Windows 7 Beta or RC, a Windows 7 key has been provided for your convenience" means? Can we just reuse the RC key? I don't have time to actually try this on my work box atm.

    What's different in enterprise? Old versions of Enterprise didn't have the dialhome activation feature, is it the same in this case?
